Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The ABS on my 2006 Silverado activates on low speed stops on dry pavement causing the brakes to release. It is not the typical ABS action that most people are familiar with, where the brakes release and apply - it is the brakes releasing and not reapplying under pressure, while foot is on brake. I have gone through an intersection while towing a horse trailer and had many near-miss incidents coming into toll booths, stop signs and red lights. Have almost rear-ended vehicles because of this. This needs to be a recall item. It is dangerous, very expensive to fix and prone to happen again once fixed.
